We recently attended a post baptism lunch at Abbondanza Trattoria. There were approximately 20 of us. The restaurant was very accommodating and opened earlier than usual for us. All of the food was served family style. The fried calamari was excellent, moist and tender. The stuffed clams and sautéed mussels were average. The orecchiete with broccoli rape and sausage, and...

A group of us who work in Jersey City went to this restaurant for a retirement party. This is a perfect opportunity for a restaurant to put its best foot forward, so that people will return. Also, considering that the neighborhood is transitioning to young, sophisticated professional people, you would think that the restaurant would move with the times. We... More

Beautiful restaurant. Good food, generous portions. Works for anything from a romantic date to a casual dinner. I ordered a fresh mozz salad, and a chicken pasta dish. both were very good.

This is about our 5 th eating here this yr. It never disappoints. The food and service are excellent AND it`s a BYOB. It`s a small restaurant make sure you have a reservation.

Service is very nice, food is fresh and plentiful! Staff welcome you and make you feel like family! So many dishes to choose and all are excellently prepared. Killer pizza and desert cannoli calzone too! Move away, but I will go back every chance I get!

My wife, son and daughter in law went to have dinner Saturday night while we were in Jersey City for a family function. Abbondanza was recommended to us by a cousin. Tucked away in a brownstone building at 257 Grand Street, is an authentic Italian restaurant straight out of "Moonstruck"! Impeccable service, great portions. My wife and I shared a... More

We ordered some food in. Pasta, pizzas and a salad. De delivery took some time, but we were aware of that. De pizzas were okay. The salade caprese couldn't go wrong, because there was nothing addited like salt, pepper or olive oil. The pasta; fettuccine bolognese tasted rather flat. The big pizza was really big though! Enough for two people... More

4/17/16- We had dined here at-least 3 time in the last 2 months.The food and service were exceptional. I always have meat dishes ( steak , Chicken or Lamb) and my wife loves the fish. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the owner great. A word of caution CALL for a reservation.

Good service, good food. Pizza is delicious and good value. Salads are amazing. You can bring your own booze, that's an added value but the noise in the restaurant makes the dinner time unbearable. The restaurant has to do something about the acoustics. You can't have a decent conversation with your company unless you scream your head off. This is... More
